Israeli Doorways

Whenever I travel I'm always on the lookout for beautiful and interesting patterns and ornamentation to use in my paintings.  Israel did not disappoint.   Some of the most amazing examples were the doorways in Jerusalem and Jaffa.  I'm really looking foward to incorporating some of this into my next body of work.
